How To Make Disinfectant Wipes / Home Sanitizing Wipes

The big problem is to find these cleaning products...we went shopping today, and there is very little to buy...aisle after aisle of empty shelves. In this time of coronavirus pandemic, you may already be forced to make your own cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting solution.

Ingredients
  • 1 roll Bounty paper towel
  • 2 tablespoon of Clorox
  • 2 cups water

Instructions:

Add bleach to water; stir well. Cut paper towel roll to fit into desired container.Pour enough solution over paper towel roll to fully absorb. Remove cardboard center from paper towel roll.

Pull pieces of paper towel (wipes) from center hole of the roll. Cover surface; allow to sit for 10 full minutes.

Bleach rapidly degrades in the presence of light and when mixed with water. Bleach solutions require a full 10 minutes of contact time to ensure complete disinfection. So if you making a spray one part bleach to 9 parts water spayed on countertop, must be left there for 10 minutes will kill virus and bacteria. Just wiping the countertop does nothing.

As a good rule of thumb, you may want to set a timer so you can monitor surfaces and ensure they're still wet. You may also want to make sure that you're sanitizing frequently used objects and surfaces daily, especially things like doorknobs, keyboards, faucet handles, and more. You don't want to forget your phone, either—you can even use these wipes or 70% isopropyl alcohol on Apple products, according to Apple.

Following best practices, and advises that if you're using wipes, you should make sure you're only wiping in one direction, as studies have suggested that doing so can reduce the risk of recontamination. Stay safe, and stay healthy!

What Happens To Your Body When You Walk Barefoot On Earth.


An expert in energy medicine field and a biology professor at the University of Pittsburgh explains that walking barefoot can provide a feeling of well-being and improve health.

Years of extensive research has shown that connecting to the Earth's natural energy, by walking barefoot on grass, sand, dirt or rock can diminish chronic pain, fatigue and other ailments that plague so many people today. This connection is referred to as Earthing or Grounding.

One reason that running in bare feet could help strengthen your feet and arches is that landing with a mid-foot or forefoot strike can actually engage the muscles in your feet.

Benefits of Earthing

Dr. Jonathan Kaplan, a foot and ankle specialist and surgeon at Hoag Orthopaedic Institute, sheds some light on how Earthing improves the physical health of your feet:
  1. Better control of your foot position as it lands on the ground.
  2. Improves balance.
  3. Improves body awareness in relation to the surroundings. This is one of the reasons it is recommended that toddlers don’t wear shoes when first walking.
  4. By improving foot mechanics, it also helps in keeping your knees, hips, and the core in proper alignment and movement.
  5. Prevents your foot and ankle joints from exaggerated movements and range of motion which also allows for proper strength and stability in the muscles and ligaments in your ankle and legs.
  6. Decreases issues from shoes which don’t fit properly (i.e. bunions, hammer toes).
  7. Increases leg strength, which helps improve lower back strength.
I think we would be hard-pressed to find a better win-win situation. By walking, we exercise our muscles and cardiovascular system, improve our mental health, reduce stress and support our overall wellness. Simply taking our shoes off seems to multiply those benefits by allowing us to synchronize with the earth’s natural electric charge.

However, you should always be aware of your surroundings and make sure it's safe for you to walk barefoot (i.e. the terrain isn't sharp or has the potential to injure your feet). If you're wondering whether walking barefoot is the right move for you, it's always best to consult your primary doctor before hitting the grass.

Overall, it might be worth it to kick your shoes off once in a while. On an evolutionary level, it all makes complete sense: We evolved close to the earth, and it’s only relatively recently that we have been so keen to remove ourselves from nature.

Moreover, it also states that earthing would help to regulate both the endocrine and the nervous systems. Thus for a healthier mind and body, AYUSH suggests that you take a fixed amount of time to walk barefoot, thus taking in the positive energy from the Mother Earth.
